Like everyone else, let’s blame it on the solar eclipse for this cooler weather some of us has been experiencing. Blaming things on the solar eclipse is the cool thing to do right? Well, what is pretty cool is not just working out, but working out with a friend and not just working out with a friend but working out with a friend outside.
(We have featured them on our blog before, here.)
Ha so now that you are all warmed up, from popping up out of your chair, grab a friend, get outside and give this workout a try!
Lower body circuit
Everyone loves leg day, right?
All you need for this three-move circuit is a flat surface, and you’ll have some serious muscle burn coming your way.
Do 15 of each move, per leg, and repeat the entire circuit two times.
The HIIT move will never win any popularity contests, but it’s an undeniably effective total-body workout.
Why else would we keep making ourselves do them?
Form is paramount with burpees, however, to avoid injury and ensure you’re getting the most out of it—watch the video to see how to do them perfectly.
If you have a park bench or a chair handy, triceps dips are a killer way to leverage your own body weight to work out your arms.
Just don’t rush them—and definitely don’t skimp on form when you start getting tired.
Real talk: Basic planks are boring.
Turn these three variations into a plank circuit workout and you’ll be feeling the burn in your core—and having a little extra fun with your workout buddy.
Share this workout with your favorite workout buddy and give it a try in the great outdoors!
